    I currently have a Sony Clie (Palm) handheld computer/organiser.
    I use it to store names and addresses and phone numbers, and to
    hold my calendar which is sync'd to Outlook.

    Given that the T610 won't store addresses, only phone numbers,
    and entering appointments will be a pain using the keypad (but
    then almost all of them are entered using Outlook and then
    sync'd), I am considering losing the Clie.

    Anyone here make real use out of their T610 as an organiser? I
    am a bit concerned about the amount of data (phone entries,
    diary dates, etc) that it will hold.

    Not used my T610 for data storage but have you considered getting a
    Handspring Treo? The 180 is available on eBay, the colour 270 from
    www.dabs.com and the new 600 from Orange.

    I did exactly that - ditched my palm Vx and use my t610

    via outlook it's excellent. I use outlook's auto repeat function to enter
    about 6 months worth of shifts

    if you got short of space you could just delete pictures or games, but I've
    never run out of memory

    Re: T610 as replacement for Palm?

    Could you enlighten me how you managed to get it sync with Outlook? I'm
    using FMA and the feature isn't yet supported, and I don't know another way.
    I'm using a Bluetooth dongle, if that makes any difference.

    It does - just press the (IIRC) "#" key twice (with T9 off)
    to insert a CR/LF (or thrice to insert a horizontal line,
    too) in e. g. the name field ... et voilá! ;o)

    I used the native bluetooth explorer. After opening it I went to My
    Bluetooth Places\My Device and configured PIM Synchronization.

    Works like a charm and I did -NOT- need to install the SE software.

    I was using (or trying to) use the PIM Sync if the native BT driver, but
    might not have set it up properly (or at all), but the SE software works
    so that's OK.
    Thanks for the replies

    Thanks for that - need to try it out and see what it does
    to the names in Outlook!

    I did that as well to start with, but my BT dongle (MSI) let
    me sync all or nothing it seemed. There didn't appear to be
    a way to sync only a selection of my diary (ie, last week and
    the next four weeks), only the whole lot.

    Not yet worked out if I can sync Outlook notes though.

    Been playing around with it tonight and it *looks* like it
    might just do the job I need it to. There may well be an A1
    condition Sony Clie going on eBay soon....

    I haven't looked at the memory yet - but am I correct then,
    in thinking that the total memory is shared among everything.

    There's no 'set' phonebook memory, games memory, sms memory?
    I don't use the games (at the moment!) or intend to store a
    load of pics/themes/ringtones, so almost all the memory will
    go on phonebook/diary/notes.

    Speaking of which....I can sync contacts, tasks and phonebook
    with outlook, but what about notes?

    Not quite right, I'm afraid. There is a part of memory reserved for each of
    the following: SMS, phonebook, notes, reminders, tasks and I'm not sure
    about notes, haven't found the option to check it yet. The rest is shared
    between games, pics, sounds, themes, MMS and java progs.
    I currently have 3 reminders taking 1% or less of the designated memory,
    they're not too big, average I'd say. 14 tasks take about 17% of their
    memory, so you do the average-count.
    As for the phonebook, there is place for 510 contacts (wasn't this supposed
    to be dynamic and not set??), and some place for the e-mails, not sure how
    much though.

    > Speaking of which....I can sync contacts, tasks and phonebook

    I'm pretty sure I managed to do that too, don't have much time now to get
    into it though, sorry.

    Good luck. We don't use Outlook (for several, well known
    reasons), thus I don't know about it. But nevertheless I
    would be interested in the results of your investigations.
    ;o)

    I keep my contacts sorted by category on my Palm and hate the "all or
    nothing" approach when doing a sync to the T610 (I use Outlook as
    middleware). However like you have discovered with the calender, there
    seems to be no way to sync only selected items or a range :-( :-( :-(
